Data Flow

Interview with Nicolas Bourquin and Thibaud Tissot
Posted by Gestalten—09/2008

Visualising information may not be making headlines today, but it surely will tomorrow in graphic design and everywhere else since more and more information is being visualised. Diagrams, data and information graphics are utilised wherever increasingly complex elements are present, whether it is in magazines, non-fiction books or business reports, (food) packages or exhibition designs. Chart-like diagrams such as bar, plot, line diagrams and spider charts, graph-based diagrams including line, matrix, process flow, and molecular diagrams to extremely complex three-dimensional diagrams are employed beyond their classical fields of use. In Gestalten.tv's latest video podcast the co-editor Nicolas Bourquin and book designer Thibaud Tissot reveal more about the concept, clues and various chapters of our newly released book Data Flow: Visualising Information in Graphic Design.
